The requirement is to implement pingalive via web feature. I have an application which downloads stock prices via internet in real time. This application is mission-critical. In the case something goes wrong with application (crash, hangup), or the whole box (power down, problem with internet line), I need to be notified via email/sms to the mobile. I do not want to implement any "monitors", which resides in the same PC but in another process, because in the case of poweroff or inet link down, it will not help. So, the idea is have "listener" somewhere in the web (ordinary php/mysql web page or script), which receives "pings" from stock quote application every 5 min. In the case of absense of "pingalive" signal, web page should send sms notification via email. As far as I understand, one of the conceptual problem can be that web site probably can not have some kind of "forever loop" in PHP script. if someone knows how to force PHP script on the site call some function every 1 min(for example), that would be fine. So, basically work consists of 2 parts - "pingalive" , API, which need to be developed and integrated with existing application; and server-side "listener". it is expected that we will have 2 such web listeners for redundancy. **Client application/API:** Windows 2000/XP, MS Visual C++ 2003, a bit of MFC, WinInet API. **Web listener:** PHP/MySQL. Could be changed to any other popular hosting platform, if reasonable.
